Not a nail tech and want to DIY? Read below for step by step instructions for fun holiday nail art with Swarovski crystals and GEMGEL Adhesive.
Step 1: Prepare your nails by pushing your cuticles back, removing all polish or gel and buffing the surface of your nail lightly. Crystals will adhere the best and last the longest on a harder surface such as acrylic or hard gel nails.
Step 2: After you have applied the base color polish or gel and before applying a top coat, apply GEMGEL Adhesive with a Gel Brush to the area of the nail that you would like to apply crystals.
Step 3: Shake the Swarovski Crystalpixie or place the individual Swarovski crystals with a pick-up-tool into the GEMGEL Adhesive. Lightly press the crystals into the gel and push crystals away from the cuticle to clean up the edges of the nails.
Step 4: Cure with a UV/LED light for 60 seconds.
Only one curing is required per hand - when you apply GEMGEL and place crystals there is no need to cure one nail at a time. This saves a lot of application time! The crystals will not shift around in the uncured gel because of the thick adhesive element!
Step 5 (optional): Apply extra GEMGEL around the edges of the crystals and nails for extra security & cure again.
